LArtusi Ratings and Reviews
I’m wife gave me a gift of dinner at L’Artusi for my birthday. What a treat! This is a great Italian restaurant. Food is prepared tapas style, but the portions are large. We had red Kale salad and mushrooms to start. The kale salad was exceptionally good as were the mushrooms, prepared with mild chili and a poached egg. We then had cavatelli with wild boat ragu and broken squid ink pasta with tuna and puttanesca sauce. Both were excellent. We were stuffed but went for dessert—an apple tart. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
There's a reason this restaurant makes all the 'top italian' lists for New York City. With its unassuming entrance you wouldn't know from the outside what a great meal, upscale atmosphere and vibrant place this is. Its superlative in every way, the food, the ambiance and the service. Its not an easy reservation to get as its not huge, but worth trying a month ahead to score a table. Or try for a bar seat. And we always appreciate a restaurant that is on time honoring reservations, they know how to plan it out well. Very reasonable choices of wine by the glass or bottle and cocktails are not overpriced and neither is food. Knowledgeable waitstaff that describe the specials with details, managers that check to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. Yes, the tables are close together, but its a narrow space. Upstairs, the tables are a bit further apart.
Fantastic as always. Great wine list, excellent pastas, and fantastic mains. Go with the chicken as your main course. It’s the best you’ll have in town. For appetizers, the mushrooms are amazing as is the beef carpaccio. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, they’ve perfected it all. And the specials are also always a treat. Extremely consistent. Always a great option for a casual week night meal or a special occasion.
Unfortunately we went for a special occasion, my husband’s birthday, and rushed to get to our reservation on time. When we arrived another patron was sitting next to our designated table (at the very very back of the restaurant), side by side next to his date so that he had to be asked to move when we arrived and he did so begrudgingly. Then we had to be subjected the entire dinner to his extremely LOUD voice and appropriate conversation and gestures with his date. Honestly the whole dinner and experience was ruined for my husband and for me. We couldn’t hear one another and if not for my husband being an extremely kind person who didn’t want me to say anything, I would have asked for our check after one drink. I had been so looking to dining there and now -Never again, L’Artusi.
Fell in love with L'Artusi from the moment we stepped foot inside. The staff was very welcoming, the ambience was energetic yet very romantic. Food was amazing and the service was equally s wonderful. Book in advance as I booked our reservation a month before our date.
We had 2 pastas which were very good and a Hamachi appetizer which was good. However the
crispy sweet breads were either over cooked or re-heated and were not very good, to be kind.
I order sweet breads whenever I see them on the menu and these were about as bad as I have tasted. So over all I would suggest avoid the sweet breads here and enjoy everything else which is pretty good and fairly priced. The service was also first rate.
My experience at this restaurant was absolutely perfect and it was something I will never forget. The ambience is beautiful, the wine list is spectacular and creatively and thoughtfully put together. The service was extremely helpful, informative, and precise. The food was spectacular in every way, everything was very well balanced and thoughtful, perfectly seasoned, and expertly executed. The food just made me smile when i took a bite. I was extremely impressed by every aspect at L'artusi. The food, the ambience, the wine, the service all came together perfectly for an amazing and unforgettable experience. I cannot wait to go back and would highly recommend.
Always seated on time (and with a nice greeting) for the reservation. One of our favorites and food tonight was excellent as usual. Really like the addition of the delicate squash to the winter menu. brought friends who had never eaten there and they loved it too Highly recommend and reserve way ahead.
The food was excellent. I had the mushroom with pancetta and a runny fried egg. It is a little spicy but the egg was a perfect complement to the spice. Also had the sweet bread, it was great! My husband had the kale salad and the octopus. He loved everything!
Excellent restaurant and service. It is worth the drive from New Jersey everytime!
I want to be honest, a month long reservation and I was NOT satisfied at all. I was very disappointed in the service from our waitress. It seemed as if she was too busy to come over. The busboys were a lot more attentive then her. The cheese appetizer was incredible. The drinks were incredible. The pasta came out slightly cold and was insanely SALTY. Disappointing to say the least. I probably would not go back. Everything would be wonderful if the service improved a bit and the pasta was not a little cold and overly salty. Also, everyone in the kitchen touching the food and plates with their hands with no gloves was a bit of a turn off as well.
Fantastic all around. Was visiting from Portland, OR and found this place by great reviews online. They are justified and inline. 2 of us shared 6 items and loved them all. Dessert was amazing with the olive oil cake, best I've ever had by a long shot. Noisy and energetic place but would definitely return. Can't miss with anything on the menu, just go for it.
